This morning when I woke up at 8 o'clock because Yuma saw dogs outside and wanted me to take him out. He was sorely disappointed when I put him on a leash and walked over to the Dog Park and there were no dogs there😕
The morning started out beautifully, but they are calling for clouds and big winds this afternoon and possible sprinkles tonight. We had our breakfast and I was just going to lay around and rest all day, but Yuma was having none of it.
About 11:30, we decided to head for Rincon Valley and drive towards the mountains. When we arrived in Vail, Arizona about 10 miles from here, we turned on a road named Colossal Cave Road. Now that sounded interesting so we followed it north out of Vail.
Yuma was anxious to get out and walk so I turned onto a dirt road that led to a lone hill that looked interesting. The road was very rough so I stopped near the entrance and Yuma and I hiked and I looked at the scenery and Yuma smelled it😁
The views of the mountains surrounding Rincon Valley are gorgeous. The wind was already starting to blow pretty good and the clouds were gathering.
You can see multiple kinds of cacti in this one picture Rincon Peak
I was surprised to find a large man-made rock formation at the very top of the hill. Maybe it's a cairn. No inscription that I could find.
That's it for the hill overlooking the Rincon Valley. Now time to head down to the Jeep and see what this Colossal Cave is all about. Yuma will show me the way.
